Those of you who have been around a little while know that your Team Fantasmo is good friends with the folks behind the annual Williamsburg Film Festival. The festival is a celebration of the Golden Age of Hollywood, with a particular focus on Westerns. Over the years we've been fortunate to have guests from the program participate at Fantasmo in the form of Q&A sessions on films we've screened (e.g. The Eiger Sanction, Friday the 13th, etc.). This year's festival is happening this weekend, and in a Fantasmo first we will actually be hosting a special episode at the event as part of the official program lineup!
Now you may be thinking to yourself that we don't really show much in the way of Westerns at Fantasmo. True enough, but there is a connection! While the guests all have significant backgrounds in Westerns, most have extensively appeared in genre film and television as well. One of the featured guests this year is Paul Picerni who, among many other cool roles, notably did battle with Vincent Price as the hero in the original House of Wax.
